My Miracle Nick

My son Nick was recently assaulted, on May 6, 2022, by an assailant with a gun. After the man pointed the gun at him, Nick attempted to get away with his then-girlfriend. The assailant chased him, and as soon as Nick got into his car and started it, his face was beaten in with a gun. He was paralyzed and stunned as his face was repeatedly beaten in. His spirit is so, so strong that he just kept saying to himself “Go, go, go ….”

Finally, somehow, he managed to get his car in gear, drive around the assailants and escape. His girlfriend was apparently behind the whole thing!! She thankfully had enough foresight to get him to a hospital. His nose, eye socket and several other face bones were obliterated. He suffered a TBI and is currently recovering. The delay of law enforcement is so egregious.

I don’t know how to get them to do their jobs!!
